Dero Bike Racks
Second Ward business Dero Bike Racks is having a big month.
In early November, they won a 2010 Commuter Choice Award. They received this honor for developing Dero ZAP, a solar powered, wireless, web-based application that allows organizations to reward employees who commute by bicycle. The program was launched within Dero itself, and they now provide a cash incentive of $3 per day to each employee who uses alternative commuting options.
Then they moved from their longtime home in the Seward neighborhood to the Southeast Minneapolis Industrial area. One of the reasons they cite for the move is the intercampus transitway trail, which will serve their many employees who bike to work.
Congratulations, Dero, and welcome to southeast!
